End of Year Review + Happy Herbivore Light & Lean Give-a-Way!!

Well, here we are; there are only 5 days left in 2013. I can’t believe another year has flow on by!

For me, 2013 marked the third anniversary of my vegan adventure (and my third wedding wedding anniversary). It also brought this little guy into our lives.

I can barely remember what life was like without my fur-baby. He sure made moving to another state in the late fall a lot better! (Going back to work after being home with him for 5 months was heartbreaking. I don’t know how people leave their human babies; the sad look in those eyes. Oy!)

2013 was a bit of light blogging year for me, mostly due to lack of content. My diet has a changed a bit – gotten a bit simpler – which has meant less recipe creations to share with you. I have some ideas on ways to continue to share food adventures with you, though, so that, along with a new blog (so excited!!) should make for some interesting blog posts in the coming months 🙂

To bring this year to a fitting close, I’m sharing a give-a-way with you. Woohoo!!

A few weeks ago, I shared a review of Happy Herbivore’s newest cookbookHappy Herbivore Light & Lean. Since then, I’ve had a chance to review the entire book – and you’re in for quite a treat!

I hope you’re having a very merry time with friends and family and are taking advantage of some much needed downtime.

I’ve got some exciting things in the works for Veggie V for 2014, including a brand new website!

Until then, I’ve got some recipes to share with your in the coming weeks – and a few product and book reviews, too!

But first, I’ve got an exciting give-a-way coming your way in just a few days!! Consider it a late Christmas gift from me to you 😀 Details available on Friday.

While you’re waiting, check out my Veggie V Christmas dinner…

Mashed potatoes (boiled golden potatoes whipped with veggie broth), mushroom gravy, stuffing (commercial brand), sauteed greens (kale and spinach sauteed with onion), and pressed, extra firm, sprouted tofu marinated in low-sodium tamari. Sooooo goooood!

Dessert was my favorite kombucha – GT’s Multigreen! Yum! (I made cinnamon apple pear sauce in the Vitamix that was going to sprinkle with goji berries and shredded coconut for dessert, but I think it’s not going to get eaten until breakfast *wink*)

And, there was only one casualty!

I’m always afraid I’m going to peel my fingers when I’m peeling potatoes or carrots – and it finally happened! No worries, though. I was able to get the bandage on by myself and continue with my dinner makin’.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
